Sir Sidney Ponson has now made four starts for the Yankees and New York has won all four games. I’m tellin’ ‘ya, that Cashman is a genius! Well, it also helps that the Yankees have scored 9, 18, 2, and 12 runs in the four games where Ponson was on the hill. It’s a lot easier to pitch when you have a huge lead. And, let’s face it…tonight’s game was over after the bottom of the third inning. (Is it just me, or, does it seem like it’s been a long time since a Yankees game was “over” after three – where it was a win for New York?)
Dude (and dudette’s), the Yankees are streaking! This is now 8 wins in a row at home. Then again the Yankees own the Twins in the Bronx. Minnesota is now 3-17 at Yankee Stadium over the last seven seasons.
Lastly, here’s a bit of news via the AP -
Oft-injured RHP Carl Pavano, coming back from elbow ligament replacement surgery, could be back this year. In the final season of a $39.95 million, four-year contract, Pavano has made just 19 starts with New York. “There’s certainly a chance for him to pitch in the majors this year if everything goes right,” general manager Brian Cashman said.
Sure. Laugh at that…if you want. But, then again, Cashman found magic with Ponson…
So, who knows about Pavano? Maybe he will make a comeback this season in the Bronx?
Imagine…the Yankees make the post-season in 2008…and either Sidney Ponson or Carl Pavano starts a “Game 4″ in a post-season series for New York…yeah…it just might happen, right?
